Great fresh baked breads, pastries, and coffee. Close to the loading area for the ferry. You can get in line and walk for the bakery for a yummy snack.

Friendly service and homemade baked goods. We bought pastries for our ferry ride and a great mocha. I loved the artwork on the walls. Will definitely stop in on our next trip.

Definitely a local hang-out, and you will know why when you go. Great fresh baked goods, excellent coffee and a great warm welcome from the staff when you arrive. Hard to get a table but worth the wait.

A nice, casual, warm place for a morning coffee and pastry. (We didn't try lunch here). There is indoor and outdoor seating. A great spot to catch a bite while waiting for a ferry or a morning breakfast if spending the night.
